Hi Roy !

Hasbro shut down the server so that this game is worthless (without the tools of some fans :D ) but got and get a lot of money for this.. :cussing:


BUT !!!!!

It works with a tool programmed by fans :happybanana:


Got to

X-COM Tactical Command

And download Tankman's Serverless X-COM (TSX)
and EX-Offline

ONLY follow the instructions of Tankman's Serverless X-COM (TSX) readme.txt

If you have problems post it

Please post your experiences

Thanks

Just out of interest.
Out of the original maps that shipped with the game, which were favorites and why?

Just wondering which one people thought played well.

Quite often in a big company you can get cut off from feedback which is useful for honing your designing skills.

Email Excom is alive and well, running without a server! :happybanana: :happybanana: :happybanana:

Provided you have a disk ( or access to the files )... AND (TSX) Tankmans Serverless Xcom patch you can play in a couple of tournaments that are currently running!

Pick up the files you need from here: http://www.x-com.co....n=category&id=6

Then Head over to http://www.shytejobs.com/cex Where you can sign on for the Tourney!

See you on the Battle field!

You wouldn't have been off-topic if only you had posted here: http://www.xcomufo.c...hp?showforum=12 ^_^
edit: Stewart's forum redesign makes me look like an donkey now :(
edit2: not to mention the forum word filter :)

There is one way to use the original fairly easily without any extra programs and stuff.

Start as normal, make the move. Press ok.
When the program gets to the "sending email" stage, leave the program and look in the install folder.
In that folder there is a directory called "temp" and in that folder is a file called something like "p1_trn1.xem" - this is the encoded move!
Copy it out of the folder (so it doesn't get deleted when the program stops)
and then you can mail it manually to your opponent using your regular email program.
(and just quit the game)

When your opponent gets the move file he can just drag it onto the Email-X-COM.exe program and it will execute it. He then does his move and fishes the turn file out in the same manner.

Thank you :-)
Seems like a nice solution!
